As a business owner, CEO or executive, you’ve likely seen the research that shows how implementing a mindful meditation program can promote a better company environment.
But when you’re ready to take the next step, there are a few tips to keep in mind to ensure the process is both seamless and as fulfilling and successful as it can be.
So keep these tips in mind before you get started. And get ready to introduce a company initiative that will wonderfully change the way you do business from the inside out.
1. Create a Clear Vision of How Mindful Meditation Will Benefit Your Company.
The object of mindful meditation at the corporate level is to create better overall “organizational health.”
Or rather, a company environment where your employees are more positive, healthier and more productive than ever before.
By putting an emphasis on how a mindful meditation can achieve this goal, you can get fellow executives on your side well before the initiative even begins.
2. Offer the Program at ALL Levels of Your Company.
Stressed-out executives clearly can benefit from mindful meditation. But so can executive assistants, lower level employees and anyone in your company who naturally has stress in their professional and personal lives.
As a result, all levels of employees regardless of their precise position can benefit from embracing meditation. So be sure the program is available to anyone who wants to join.
3. Encourage Your Employees to Share.
One of the major reasons why massive companies like Aetna have more than 13,000 employees signing up for mindful meditation wellness programs is simply because of word of mouth.
As employees initially participated, and shared their experiences with their co-workers, more and more employees were inspired to join.
So encourage your staff members who sign up for your program to share! Their personal experiences will be the best incentive to get all of your employees to come on board.
4. Track Your Results.
You may notice after implementing mindful meditation your employees seem happier and less stressed. And have a world of positive personal reviews, but do you know how it has affected your bottom line?
Have a system in place to measure and track the results of mindful meditation by looking at sick days, health expenses, time clocked at the office, productivity and all of the above.
By paying attention to the numbers, you’ll be able to solidify your decision to implement mindful meditation.
5. Don’t Go It Alone.
To introduce a successful program into your company, you need a little expert guidance. After all, there are a lot of big questions that go hand-in-hand with this initiative, such as:
- How does it work?
- When should it be available?
- How should our employees participate?
